Pinot Noir

Pork loin chops on a bed of wilted spinach and mushroom with a porcini and red wine sauce


2 pork loin chops
1 tablespoon chopped sage
1 teaspoon honey
salt & pepper

10g porcini mushrooms
1 chicken stock cube, melted in 1/3 pint boiling water
100ml Deakin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
1 teaspoon damson jam
1 teaspoon Taste No 5 umami paste

3 spring onions
6 open cup mushrooms
1 bag of baby spinach
1 clove of garlic

Coat the chops in honey, salt and pepper and then fry them for a couple of minutes on each side. Then pop them into an oven (200 degrees C) for 8-10 minutes.

For the sauce combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and then reduce by about 2/3.

Fry the onion, garlic and mushroom together in the deglazed pork pan and then wilt the spinach over it.

Build the dish (on a slightly nicer plate than the one in my picture!) and serve with Deakin Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.
